A new generation fighter and soon to be the Philippines’ next boxing gem keeps soaring high towards the top under ALA Promotions.
19 year old true-blue Boholano, Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo is rapidly making a name in the world of boxing in his quest to be lined up with some of the great names in the industry in the near future.
Magsayo is one of the most promising prospects from the ALA Gym with great fighting skills that boxing fans should watch out for in the highly anticipated 28th series of Pinoy Pride.
Magsayo, who stands 5’7 started as an amateur boxer at the age of 8 and was able to join 200 amateur fights wherein he bagged 4 gold medals in national competitions and twice named as the Best Boxer.
“I want to be a world champion,” the promising fighter who looks up to Nonito Donaire, disclosed when being asked about his goal in the industry.
This future boxing superstar who has recently beaten Korea’s pride, Hyuk Tak Joo will again try to prove his strength and might in the ring this November 15 at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.
